Abstract: Summary Impaired physical capacity is common in people with severe levels of obesity. We aimed to investigate changes in physical capacity outcomes in patients with severe obesity following 12 months of physician‐led multidisciplinary care from a “real world” Australian public hospital setting using a case series study design. We extracted data from medical records for all of the eligible patients referred to our clinical obesity service from 2010 to 2015 (69 of 239). We found significant (P < .05) pre‐test/po… Show more

“…All patients enrolled were over 18 years of age with a BMI ≥40 kg/m 2 and at least one weight-related medical comorbidity, the most common being T2DM or nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The components of the metabolic clinic have been previously described in detail by Atlantis et al [26]. In brief, the program offers a multidisciplinary approach involving endocrinologists, a gastroenterologist, dietitian, a psychiatrist, psychologists, physiotherapists and a specialist nurse.…”

“…Patients with T2DM who performed at least moderate levels of physical activity have been shown to have reduced all-cause mortality compared to those who performed no or mild levels of physical activity [24,25]. Physical capacity outcomes have been shown to improve in patients with class 3 obesity enrolled in our multidisciplinary program that included supervised exercise [26]. However, patients with class 3 obesity appear to face more barriers to physical exercise than patients without class 3 obesity, and patients may decline participation in supervised exercise programs [27].…”

“…Disability is worse for those admitted to hospital with high EOSS than outpatients 39 and thus should be the target of early hospital interventions that focus on rehabilitation and return to function. Specialized clinical obesity services with supervised onsite exercise have been shown to be effective for improving physical capacity and function in patients with severe obesity 48 …”

“…All patients were seen by a physician, dietitian and psychologist. The weight management program has been described in detail previously [ 28 , 29 , 30 , 31 ]. Dietary advice was personalised, which included but was not limited to advice for a 500 Kcal reduced diet, partial meal replacement and/or a low-calorie diet.…”
